Editors’ Notes

Fun-filled way to learn math.

Wonderful. Wonderful. But darn it.


My six-year-old daughter loves this game 100%. Unfortunately we have run into a snag. She has made it to mission 18 and one of the objectives is to put Emilie in the outhouse. I can’t seem to pick Emelie up. I can pick every other monster up, but I cannot pick Emelie up. She is on the ledge above where my daughter placed the out house, right next to the dance floor. I can double tap her and get a close-up. And even tap her and show her name. But when I longhold on the character I cannot pick her up. She even completed additional math puzzles to get a dance party and after the scene we still could not pick Emelie up. Is this just a me glitch and will I have to restart the game or have others experienced this also. I don’t mind the price tag on the game but I do expect a fully working game.

Daughter loves it; wish we could repeat early levels


My almost-6yo really enjoys this game. She loves the monsters, loves the puzzles, loves customizing the island. There are a couple of issues we have, though:

- Because numbers are frequently centered instead of right justified, she's having a really hard time with tens and ones places. She'll frequently try to add the tens from one block to the ones from another, and then she gets frustrated.

- She breezed through early levels, but needs to reinforce those skills so she can apply them to the two-digit numbers. I haven't found any kind of setting that would allow her to repeat lessons.

- She gets really stressed out when the monsters get sick. So then when we're trying to work through challenging problems, and she can see their health dwindling, she's too focused on feeling like she's killing her monsters and can't direct her focus to the equations.

I wonder if there are settings I'm missing that would allow us to address these issues?

Just want to reiterate that we both love the app! These are just some things that could improve the experience in our case.

Thank you for the excellent feedback. The "Info for Parents" page in the app does allow you to limit puzzle play to Math Levels 1-8. This can be helpful when a child needs more practice on the beginner puzzles. You can get to this page by zooming out all the way when on the island view and tapping on the "i" icon on the right side of the screen.
